With You

When I’m with you I act different,

In a good way. I smile more and laugh more.

With you, I can drop a fake smile and put on a real one.

I don’t feel hurt and alone when I’m with you.

Instead, I feel safe and loved.

You’re easy to talk to, and you listen to me.

I don’t feel sad, you show that you really do care,

and you’re not just pretending.

I really appreciate what you did,

because with you, I’m different.

With you, I’m happy.
